Artful Dodge Discussion

Peoni on Crustacean Altercation

This deck might benefit from evasion cards like Aqueous Form, Artful Dodge, and Awesome Presence.

I'd also recommend swapping out Nyx Lotus and Gilded Lotus for different rocks. It costs 4 mana to cast AND comes in tapped AND you aren't even guaranteed to get value out of it. It all depends on whether or not you're having a good game. You could play this turn 4, not get to use it til turn 5 since it's tapped, AND still maybe only get 1 or 2 mana out of it. Oh, and because of its high cost it's going to be a juicy target for removal. If it gets blown up you basically just skipped a turn. Gilded Lotus is similarly a large target for removal, it's slow, and if it gets destroyed it isn't quite like skipping a turn since you get 3 out of it immediately, but it's still a setback. Everflowing Chalice and Fellwar Stone would each be pretty nice replacements.

I like your deck! Big crab is gonna be fun to see in action. Hope this helps. :^)

Bounty of Might seems weak, since to copy it, you're paying 6 to give one creature +9

Can you copy Blossoming Defense, Hunter's Insight or Ranger's Guile on other player's creatures?

Artful Dodge makes all opponents unable to block on attacks, as does Mugging, Off Balance, Renegade Tactics, Singe, Stun

All of the ___ Wisps cards, Expedite, Leap, Accelerate, Carom, Pressure Point, Quickchange, Refocus, will draw a ton of cards on a big board.

Also a ton of mass-damage, mass-bounce, mass-protection, mass-indestructible you could look at. Ex: Snap is a pseudo boardwipe that generates a ton of mana

Clockspinning is 1 mana to get 2 counters, or 5 mana to get 4 counters. Do you reckon it has a place here? In addition, flashback and buyback seems really good in this. Stuff like Lava Dart, Artful Dodge, Reckless Charge, and Seething Anger might be good.

Nevinyrral_Mayor_of_Urborg Teferi's Veil and Vanishing are extremely underappreciated cards you can throw on commanders or valuable creatures and keep them alive; Aether Tunnel and Aqueous Form are cheap and reliable ways to ensure combat damage while things like Distortion Strike Artful Dodge and Slip Through Space all allow someone to sneak in for a huge hit of damage and provides a small boost to a couple of your creatures by being in the yard. And Trailblazer's Boots pretty much read unblockable in most EDH games.

Funkydiscogod I totally get your point, Modern decks is much faster and resilient than this, and Pioneer should probably suit this deck better, I guess. Ghostform and Aether Tunnel is the best substitutes I can find in exchange for Artful Dodge and Distortion Strike , and the "power drop" on Vapor Snag , Echoing Truth , Overrun and Hunted Troll (as you say) by their sub is uncertain at this point.

I have barely played any pioneer so I actually don't know how a deck with the lesser substitutes would fair in the format. What do you think? :) I really appreciate the input btw, must think this over, and I like the opportunity to mix things up! :D

Gidgetimer on What happens to opponent creatures?

If you cast Artful Dodge on a creature no creatures are able to block it. If you cast Artful Dodge on Treeshaker Chimera "all creatures able to block" it are none, so no creature blocks it.

Why would your opponents creatures become tapped by this interaction? I think there may be a deeper misunderstanding here.

When you assign combat damage each creature deals damage equal to its power. You would deal 8 damage and it would be assigned as 1 to each of the creatures and 5 to the defending player.

Possible ideas to get around colored protection: Ersatz Gnomes , Slip Through Space , Unnatural Endurance , and Wrap in Vigor .

Cards to remove/rethink: Death's Presence , Artful Dodge , Distortion Strike , Aether Tunnel , Bioshift , Roalesk, Apex Hybrid .

This deck uses a TON of colored mana, and very little colorless. Consider changing your mana rocks to better reflect that. For example, Chromatic Lantern might help more than Thran Dynamo.
